    Happy with my new device mount. High enough so I don't take my eyes off the road and it doesn't block my view of the road. Also doesn't block any of the AC.

    Oh, that makes sense. I hadn't thought about landscape mode. And with the bigger screen (I use the smaller iPhone 7) that sounds like it would work well.

    I liked your idea, but saw the Sodee dock was out of stock, so I created a model and 3D printed something very similar in flexible filament.

    For anyone interested, here is the model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2518752

    Sorry to rain on your parade. But those mounts will block your view . In some states it could get you ticketed.

    Haven't had any issue with it blocking my view at all...

    My mother is 5'3" and she doesn't have any issues with it either when driving my car. The view in that picture is with the camera lower than the mount because I was trying to get the picture without any glare.

    I've had cops stopped next to me in California and Nevada and they didn't even give it a second glance.

    Thank you for posting this! My phone was originally mounted in the lower console under the head unit and I found myself looking down for Waze directions or to adjust my playlist.
    I ended doing your phone holder and it has worked great. I did end up removing the double sided tape from the CAW.CAR for better magnetic hold.

    Best part is that it doesn't block the airflow from the vents.

    Got one of the magnetic mounts and put it in the blank spot on the left of the steering wheel. I'll get a pic up at some point. Worked well for my drive to Cali and back running google maps nav.

    After seeing your post here, and having a prior set up that failed because of the adhesive, I went with your idea. Great solution!! Thanks

    It's on bluetooth and out of the way of my sight line so it fits. Plus there are 2 blank inserts beside the 2 buttons so it was easiest to put it there instead of on the dash where it would have left a mark or residue that might have been noticeable. I can still see the screen if i need to but it keeps it out of the way so I don't think about it unless I need to.
